LE CHOUETTE FESTIVAL

THE FESTIVAL BIO

After a successful pilot edition in October 2020, whose official selection was very impressive, we launched "Le Chouette Festival" in October 2021. We received 902 films and screened over 60 films. Directors came from as far away as Jordan.

Our festival takes place every first weekend of October in Rieux Minervois. This is a small town in the South of France full of lovely people and great wine.

The festival has five main categories: National, International, Young Audiences, Animation and the Dark Side our "midnight screening but at 9.30PM" reserved for over 15 yrs.

Films are screened in blocks in 3 different locations. 

On Friday evening we have our opening, it's a presentation of our 7 Grand Jury members, a screening of the 'After Dark' session and food and drinks. There are sessions all day Saturday and our "Red Carpet" event on Saturday evening. We invite film makers & juries to an amazing brunch on Sunday morning. There are several screenings on Sunday, and a Q&A with a well know film director from Europe.

We have an "Awards" on Sunday evening.

There are 15 awards given.

Local winegrowers will be in the spotlight throughout the weekend!

 

The days of Thursday and Friday will be devoted to sessions for school children.They also vote and award a trophy.

What drives us: to offer for four days a space for meeting, sharing and exchange around the theme "Love, Friends, Family" between professionals, enthusiasts and novices in the world of short films.
